Russia launched an overnight drone strike on Kiev and the surrounding region after a 12-day break, with air defense systems destroying all weapons on its approach, Ukrainian military officials said on Sunday.

The country’s air force said the attack included eight Iranian-made Shahed drones and three cruise missiles that were shot down.

“Another enemy attack on kyiv,” Serhiy Popko, a colonel-general who heads kyiv’s military administration, said in a post on the Telegram channel.

Three private houses were damaged as a result of falling debris from drones in the Kiev region, injuring one person, the region’s military chief Ruslan Kravchenko said on his Facebook page.

Reuters witnesses heard explosions that resembled the sound of air defense systems hitting targets. There was no immediate word on the scale of the attack.

kyiv, its surrounding region and several regions in central and eastern Ukraine were under airstrike alerts for about an hour after 02:00 local time (2300 GMT).
